Project Life Tuesday - Week 34

The Mom Creative

Welcome to Project Life Tuesday!  Every week I share the layout I've been working on, either in my family's weekly book or my son's baby book.  I started using the Project Life system in 2010, so this will be my fourth full year!  I used to be a very traditional scrapbooker who would spend hours on a single layout to document one or two photos.  Thanks to Project Life, I have become much more practical and I'm able to record a multitude more memories.

If you're looking for inspiration on what others are doing with their Project Life, you can check out my board on Pinterest and be sure to link up on The Mom Creative!

Although I am typically use a hybrid style combining digital and traditional elements, project "Get Caught Up on My Album" has officially begun, which is why you see a LOT more digital stuff here than I usually do.  In the name of git 'er done, my mouse and I have been hard at work in Photoshop Elements.  Here's what I have so far!

So, you know how I used the Amy Tan Cut & Paste kit last week in the name of being a bit more girly?  I actually used the exact same kit again this week, but was able to keep it much more dude-friendly by choosing different cards and changing the colors a bit.  For example, I added the yellow stripes to the first 3x4 journal card for a pop of color.  The journal card on the far right represents something I really like to do with my Project Life albums, documenting events that are happening in the news or in popular culture.  When I heard about the acceptance speech that Ashton Kutcher made at the Teen Choice Awards, I was blown away.  I knew I had to put it in my album.

I monkeyed with a few more things on this page with my limited digital skills.  For the card in the top left spot, I changed the border color to blue and added the arrow with a brush.  I really like how the pops of pink on this page add a burst of color without making the page too feminine.

By the way, am I the only one who has ever let their kids play in gutter water?  Who needs a pool??!!
